Creating a portfolio is a way to sell yourself and your talents. A friend and I were talking last night about portfolios and I shared that I am constantly updating mine. It is important that we continually keep our portfolios up to date. In today’s generation, it is crucial to have both a traditional and an online version of our portfolios.
For the past few years I have used www.livebinders.com as my online portfolio. It worked well and I was pleased. It is free and user friendly.
Recently I found www.portfoliogen.com. This free website is made with educators in mind.
There are many ways to create an online portfolio and many websites that will assist you in creating one. I have used different websites for many things. For instance, I use Blogger to host my educational blog, and am starting to use www.wordpress.com as a professional website. All are free or have upgrades available depending on your needs.
The key is to make a portfolio to represent who you are. Highlight your attributes and share with others prior to even applying for or looking for jobs!
